Sunday ride to Frilford and Uffington

Sunday, 8 September 2013 - 9:30am

Ride report

Given cyclists’ liking for food, I thought it would not be inappropriate to begin this ride report with a cautionary tale about linguini. Here’s the thing (as the Americans say): even when you have eaten half of it, the plate still looks full. This must be because, being flat, linguini compresses into a smaller space than does, for example, spaghetti. You have been warned – beware of linguini when facing a 30km ride home.
Seeing Dragon Hill begin to rise a few hundred metres away, only one rider expressed a desire to climb it, and (she) was outvoted 6 to 1.
It hardly rained on us at all. A lovely ride with great company, as always.
